Default Calica Port

We will be on the Inspiration Christmas week. Stop includes Calica. Two adult and one 6 year old. Was going to do Xcaret. Any other recommedations? If we do Xcaret, should we buy the admission tickets online before we go? Also, should we just buy any extras on the admission ticket?

Xcaret will be a full day's outing. Hopefully they will do the equestrian show next to the (excellent) restaurant when you are there. The jungle river tubing is also excellent.

Default calica port.....

Let me know how you make out! We (hubby and I...no kids this time!) are taking our first cruise at the end of Feb, and we're also on the same ship/ports. We're trying to figure out what to do when we get there as well. We are stumped! Do we book now...wait till we're on the ship, just wing it when we get to port?? We're sooooo confused!

When we were in Calica, we went independently to Xel-Ha, which is similar to XCaret but cheaper and farther away. XCaret has the advantage of being within sight of Calica. Either one should be an awesome day, particulary if the 6-year old is a swimmer or at least not afraid of the water...

Xcaret will likely take all your time.

If you are interested in doing other things instead of Xcaret you have several options. Calica is a great jumping off point for seeing Tulum. (if you haven’t already been) It’s an extremely impressive, although increasingly busy, Mayan site. If you have never been it is really interesting and beautiful. Tulum has a nice beach for swimming and beautiful views of the sea as well. This too would take up most of a day.
